  1. I’ve worked with Robert for several years now and he’s one of the few Agents I can say I’ve been totally comfortable leaving my clients with and feeling 100% satisfied that everything is going to run smoothly. For those of you that have worked with the same client for extended periods you know that when you introduce someone new into the mix it’s almost like throwing them to the wolves. You can’t expect them to do everything like you do it, and your Principal is going to notice. Rob has a great quality of adapting to whatever is thrown at him and making sure at the end of the day the job has been done correctly. Who can ask for more than that?

  2. I appreciated and enjoyed the article on Rob…I was not complete until I saw your comment and read where you gave him a positive Icon review.

  3. Looks like your recommendation came about a month too soon.
